Many claim that from the summit of Snækollur (Snow Top Mountain) you can, on a clear day, see both the south and north coast of Iceland. Snækollur is the highest peak in Kerlingafjöll mountains and we can vouch, ocean-view or not, that the scenery is breathtaking.
Hike with a knowledgeable guide up a steep but relatively short ascent and then along the rocky mountain ridge trail to the top. There it is time to take a well deserved snack break while enjoying the amazing views. If conditions allow, the return hike will take us over a small glaciated snowfield, straight down to where we started.
What to bring
Warm clothes and socks, wind- and waterproof jacket, sturdy boots, gloves, buff, hat, and sunglasses. Water, snacks, and a light lunch.
